Build Houses

  • To get more workers, that we gonna need, we need to build houses. In order to do that, go into the building menu by pressing “b” or clicking on it in the lower left party of the screen, alternatively you can also press “4” or clicking on the house-icon in your hotbar.
  • Now place it somewhere (I recommend near the base) with LMB. You can also rotate it with “r”, but this will be only useful later in the game.
